Breathe: Health in, Cancer out

Deep breathing can help calm us in almost all instances. Yoga exercises emphasize the importance of deep, cleaning breaths. If you've been recently diagnosed or are going through treatment, see if this technique might help soothe you:

On a long inhale, say "health in."
On a long exhale, say "cancer out."

Repeat as long as you want. I usually did this for about 10 repetitions a time and, if I were really focusing well, I honestly could envision good, clean white air going in, and the evil cancer going out. I still occasionally do this, five years later.

Now, I seldom mention cancer, I just repeat "health in" on the inhale, and simply relax on the exhale.
Breathe......

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
